Let the Journey Begin

Hello Everyone!  A good friend of mine is taking a dream trip of a lifetime to Italy.  She is so excited, so I knew I had to make her a card to wish her a wonderful time and safe travels.  My Favorite Things Goin' Places was the perfect stamp set to create this special card.  I stamped the main image on white cardstock and colored the map and suitcase with prisma colors and blended with mineral spirits to create the shading.  The dress is paper pieced using Beyond the Garden dsp.  The blue background cardstock is Pacific Point.  See the tone on tone circles on the card base?  That's the retired On the Spot background stamp.  I really love how it goes with the circle of the doily from PTI.  A few nail head brads complete this fun card.  Thanks for stopping by!

What a lucky friend...both to be receiving this card and to go to Italy! Your coloring is fabulous. I love the little airplane with the banner. How nice that the On the Spot stamp set goes with the doily craze going on now!
